Russia: January 8, 2001

Russia has been moving military units formerly stationed in Georgia, to neighboring Armenia. Georgia has refused to allow the Russian troops to stay.

Armenia and Azerbaijan are still technically at war over some disputed Azeri territory (that has a majority Armenian population.)
